Nokia’s strategic partnership with Microsoft has seen the tech world flooded with debates and discussions about where the Finlanders went wrong and what they should have done to save its dying hold on the smartphone universe. One thought that we have seen rise in the last 24 hours or so has been centered around the suggestion of Nokia adopting Android as their smartphone platform. We think going for Android wouldn’t have served manufacturer’s best interest for reasons discussed in the coming paragraphs.

Microsoft has been mum about the Windows Phone 7 sales number. The only thing we know so far in that regard is that the Redmondians have sold around 1.5M handsets and that to retailers.
